I am so excited to share with you the fabulous Fallon from Sage + Sparkle, New York based fashion and lifestyle blog.  I love Fallon's fun and feminine take on fashion and I was excited to get her take on stripes.sage+sparkle_stripes_1 Q.What is the first thing you think of when you think of stripes?

A.  When I think of stripes, the first thing that comes to mind is that stripes can be such a flattering pattern, as long as you know how to wear them.sage+sparkle_stripes_2

Q. Are you into mixing patterns with stripes?  If so, what is your favorite go to?

A. Yes. I love mixing stripes with just about anything - from leopard, to plaid, to floral, anything goes - as long as you pay attention to proportion. You always want to make sure that when mixing patterns, one is a larger scale than the other. On the other hand, I do love a good black + white stripe paired with a solid pop color.sage+sparkle_stripes_4

Q. How are you planning on styling your stripes this fall season?

A.  This Fall Season, I'm excited about playing with sheer stripes and of course, layering! For fall, I tend to stay away from the typically navy + white stripes and try to incorporate more muted, deeper tones - and of course black + white stripes, which work for any season.
